Shabbat Shalom: Mishpatim

Posted on January 28, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Are you a person who needs to know all the details before you make a commitment? If you trust someone, are you able to agree without knowing exactly what is being requested? In this week’s Torah portion the Israelites respond to Moses, “We will do and we will hear all that God commands us” before they have heard all of what those commandments are. What would it take for you to respond this way: to promise to do something before it is even asked of you?
